I have a few questions, I am diagnosed with FASD for almost 5 years now. I do have girls who are 14,11 & 9 and I would like to explain to them about my disability. How can I talk to them regarding this situation, They have been getting information from other family member regarding this and have no idea about the subject. I do want my girls to know that its a spectrum and for myself what it has changed my life to someone that doesn’t have FASD.
You can tell them FASD is a brain-based injury and caused by a mothers drinking while she is pregnant. Never shame or blame your mother while explaining FASD to your children and others. You can also tell them that each person with FASD is affected differently. Some have more difficulties and challenges, and some have less.
You can explain the challenges you face, and how you overcome them. There are many resources on our website and Facebook page too and you are welcome to print or share with your children.
